The Hindu - - CHENNAI - Staff Re­porter

Renowned film­maker Bharathi­raja on Mon­day al­leged that ac­tor Ra­jinikanth was act­ing as an ‘emis­sary’ of Kar­nataka and warned that he must speak with re­straint. Mr. Ra­jinikanth had con­demned the vi­o­lence against po­lice dur­ing the re­cent protests against the In­dian Premier League game in Chep­auk. “You didn’t speak up when the Kan­nada film in­dus­try spoke against Tamil in­ter­ests, when po­lice at­tacked and chased Tamils, ve­hi­cles were de­stroyed, Tamil driv­ers were stripped naked and at­tacked. De­spite stay­ing in Tamil Nadu and liv­ing a king’s life, you are brand­ing us as vi­o­lent,” he said.
